If a monitor isn’t properly calibrated and profiled, a photographer could be guessing whenever they make any edits to their images. This webinar is perfect for anyone that has had trouble getting prints that match the image on their monitor.

During this webinar, attendees will learn how X-Rite’s two new display solutions—the ColorMunki Display and i1Display Pro—feature new hardware and software for color calibration and profiling of displays, laptops and projectors.
